This restaurant is named after the cuisine of the Chinese dialect it represents: the Teochew or Chiu Chow (Cantonese pronounciation) or Chiao Jo (Mandarin pronounciation) dialect. What is great here is what we Teochew call "Mee Pok Ta" or "Cho Meen" in Cantonese. This noodle dish comes in either the seafood or "everything" version (contains organ meats). Other recommended dishes are their fishball soup, their Steamed Teochew Duck and their "Hae Cho" or "Har So" in Cantonese which is a deep fried stuffed roll. It helps if you either speak the language or know what you want.

Get the curry soup: my life's great moments were always punctuated by this wonderful dish that no other restaurant (except Bo-Ky) comes within hailing distance of. Other dishes are great but the menu is very small. The cuisine served is not Cantonese but a variation that is named the same as the eponymous restaurant, sort of Chinese with Vietnamese touches. Beware the stairs to the bathroom!

Editorial from

The menu is scribbled on the wall in at least three Asian languages. The special soup noodles come in a variety of flavors; they're sometimes spicy, usually soul warming and quite tasty. Start with an appetizer of the cha chow fried prawn…
